Della Valle Commits To Basketball Bucks

3

Thad Matta scored his first commit for next season as the Ohio State men's basketball team secured the commitment of 6'3" combo guard Amedeo Della Valle. Della Valle (who's name is pronounced A-muh-day-o Day-la Vawl) chose the Buckeyes over Arizona and Texas A&M, who'd both been recruiting the Italian product far longer than the Bucks. The 3-star guard was also a one time target of Michigan and coach John Beilein. Della Valle, who reminds some of a poor man's Jon Diebler, will head to Ohio State by way of Las Vegas area Henderson, Nevada prep school Findlay Prep. NBA players Avery Bradley (Boston Celtics), Tristan Thompson (Cleveland Cavs), DeAndre Liggins (Orlando Magic), and Cory Joseph (San Antonio Spurs) are all former Findlay Alumni.
